Depression can wear many faces. For some clients, feelings of deep sadness, low energy, and a sense of hopelessness may be prominent. For other clients, irritability, difficulty eating and sleeping, and a defeatist attitude may be the way their depression shows up.
There are key areas that therapists look at to determine a depression diagnosis. When it is determined that depression is the culprit for a client’s struggles, some people can address their symptoms through talk therapy, improved diet and exercise, increased boundary settings, and learning to express their thoughts and feelings appropriately. We find some clients also benefit from antidepressant medications, but not all our clients go that route.
If you have felt down or blue for at least two weeks or longer, or if you have thoughts of wishing you were just gone, please don’t delay: depression is treatable.
